Work on wind farm leads to discovery of Neolithic site in Suffolk

Archaeologists in Suffolk have discovered a Neolithic site which they say is of international significance.

They were digging at Woodbridge along the planned cable route for an offshore wind farm when they came across a trackway dating back more than 4,000 years.

As a result, the 23 mile route is being altered so the find can be preserved.

Watch a report by ITV News Anglia's Russell Hookey.

Police experience their very own 'Hot Fuzz' moment!

If you're ever seen the comedy Hot Fuzz then you may well appreciate this!

This was the scene in Norwich last night (Thursday 21st June) where police had to escort a swan to safety after it landed in the city's clubbing district!

Police feared the swan could be hit by a car so helped shepherd it down the street.

The bird eventually flew off - but not before revellers managed to film the surreal moment!

Big numbers predicted when two rare number plates go under the hammer

There's a chance to buy a little bit of automotive history later this month when two car number plates go under the hammer.

First up is the rare plate UK6 which was first put in circulation in 1910 only seven years after vehicles were first fitted with the identifying markers.

It has been in private ownership for more than 50 years but is now going under the gavel with an estimate of between £45,000-£50,000, according to Humbert & Ellis Auctioneers, of Northamptonshire.

Jonathan Humbert, from the auction house, said:

"The market in private and cherished number plates is very much on the up. Given our recent success with TAXI, recently sold for £92,000, we have high hopes for this quintessentially British number plate UK6, with both a United Kingdom attribution and a very low single number and such an early and historic plate too."

For the more internationally-minded, the number plate 1RAN will be offered to the highest bidder, with an estimate of £50,000.

Both items will go up for sale on June 28.
